Elizabeth’s Cake Smash

Powered By SmugWP

I had to do it – the traditional messy birthday cake session.  Elizabeth recently turned one – so it was time to get a cake and load up on cleaning products.  She’s got a pretty good sweet tooth – so we expected the cake to be a big hit.  After a few tentative fingers poking into the frosting, we plopped her down next to it and she got straight to business.  She lasted about five minutes – then she threatened to leave the ‘safe zone’ covered in frosting so we pulled the plug.

Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 24-105 f/4L @ 45mm  ISO 100, 1/200 sec. f/7.1.  Three lights (all Alienbee AB800’s) were used – the key light with a 4′ octobox is at camera right, the fill light with a shoot-through umbrella is at camera left.  A third light on a boom is blasting the background to blow it out.
